"Timelessly funny....[Davidson] is wry, British and almost drawling, and one supposes that this is pretty much how Wodehouse himself would sound." (AudioFile)

"A useful anthology for short listens"
A collection of Wodehouse short stories that serves very well as an audiobook to hold in reserve and dip into when you want a quick 20 minute listen.
If you want to listen for several hours at a time, then a longer single story would be a better bet as these can become a bit "samey" if listened to end-to-end.
Personally, I was not wildly taken with the narration, but not to the extent of marring the pleasure of Wodehouse's writing.
"Awful narration ruins the experience"
The story is probably perfectly good although it is masked by the dreadful narration.
I cannot understand how this narrator ever got the job. His 'voices' are completely bizarre, and his own voice rises and falls in completely unexpected places making it so distracting to listen to that all the humour is totally wasted, it simply doesn't come through.
